She vows to put the unscrupulous businessman Espinosa, upon whom she lays the blame for the killing of Cattani, behind bars. Tano, who killed his wife, is already in prison; Silvia offers him mitigation if he testifies against the Mafia and Espinosa, but Tano remains silent. When Mimmo, the son of the influential Mafia-family Linori, is murdered in Sicily by an American, Masino, Silvia follows the killer all the way to the U.S., where his tracks disperse. Silvia has no idea that at the same time the former Italian policeman Davide Licata, who had to flee from the Mafia to New York for fear about the safety of his wife and son, is infil-trating the Linori family disguised as a domestic servant in order to prove their participation in international ...

the battle goes on
8 May 2002 | by (nijmegen,netherlands) – See all my reviews

after corrado cattani is murdered maffia think they have won but they are wrong. Corrado's last girlfriend judge Silvia conti and ex policeman Davide licata won't let them.

The Battle goes on

this is the first episode without Michele Placido as the charismatic investigator and when this series first came out people were missing him,but without him this still is an excellent tvmovie

vittorio mezzogiornio is our new hero an italien ex cop living in new york and then going back to sicily to find the man responsible for the slaugter of his unit. Mezzogiorno is a good replacement for Placido not a broken man but a no-nonsense cop

out real hero of course is Patricia millardet as female judge Silvia Conti Corrado's last loved one she promise to find them all that's not only the assasins and those who ordered to kill but also those responsible of the dead of other innocent people

while Mezzogiornio and Millardet are the lead actors most credit goes out for Remo Girone as Tano carridi a brilliant played evil insaint character that in someways doesn't look that evil. Girone plays Tano in a way not even an american actor has played a bad guy.

La piovra 5 is as good as the first 4 parts it's another story of vengeance, betrayal, loyalty, corruption and death
